Are your eyebrows thinning? Have you noticed that you’re having to fill them in more and more with pencil or some other filler?

There are several remedies to prevent or slow down thinning eyebrow hair, so read on to learn more about your options.
Treatments: Medical vs. Natural
Trichotillomania is the uncontrollable urge to pull out hair from an area on the body, including eyebrows. This disorder typically starts in childhood and progresses into adulthood. It can be treated by medication such as fluoxetine (Prozac) or aripiprazole (Abilify). Fluoxetine is more commonly used for this condition because it has fewer side effects than aripiprazole.
Thinning eyebrow hair is a common problem that can have a significant impact on your appearance. In any case, there are many ways to battle the problem.
Below are five remedies that can help stop thinning eyebrow hair:
- Minoxidil (brand name Rogaine) – Latisse (generic name bimatoprost) – Serum injections – Laser treatments – Shaving or waxing the eyebrows and then drawing them back in with an eyebrow pencil
2) Micro needling with platelet-rich plasma
Micro needling is a treatment that uses a small device with tiny needles. The needles puncture the skin to create micro-channels in the dermis layer. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into these channels, and it stimulates the body’s natural healing process to grow new collagen and elastin. PRP is taken from your own blood so there’s no risk of allergy or rejection.
3) Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections have been found to stimulate hair growth. The procedure is done by taking a small amount of your blood, putting it in a centrifuge, and then injecting it into the area you are looking to treat. This treatment is not yet FDA approved but has shown promising results for some people. It’s also not for everyone so make sure you know about the risks before deciding to move forward with this therapy.
4) Bimatoprost Solution
Eyebrows frame the face and make a difference in how you look. If you have thinning eyebrow hair, it can affect the shape of your brows and make them appear smaller.
